Welcome to health care magic,
Heart attack means decrease blood supply to some part of heart.
Once heart attack occurs the some amount of heart muscle damaged.
And after attack also we can survive .
If you take nessasary treatment with in the time limit you can decrease the amount of damage of muscle.
Some of them can have heart attack associated with sudden death,
This happen in only 30% people.
Thank you
